Visit from DiAnn

While Bruno was in England last weekend visiting his parents, brother and family, DiAnn (Sheri's mom) came to Connecticut for a visit.  The last visit DiAnn made to Hangman Hill Road was during the Great Flood in March of 2010.  Fortunately this weekend the weather provided a sharp contrast to that March visit several years ago, with crystal clear sunny skies, mild temperatures and low humidity.    The weekend was sprinkled with walks with Kokee, trips to Westerly for lunch and to get a Westerly Town Beach pass, and a very nice evening in Watch Hill.   There as also a lot of time spent preparing for Mimi's Celebration of life which will take place in June.  Sheri and DiAnn spent a great deal of time scanning in photos of Mimi from all stages of life, and with the wonders of iPhoto have a slideshow that will honor her long and very rich life.  The final scanning of photos was rewarded with a trip to Watch Hill for drinks at the Ocean House, followed by the first dinner of the season at The Olympia Tea Room, which opened last week.  One other highlight from the weekend was the harvest of the first strawberries.
